To use the percent (
%) and underscore (
_) wildcard characters as literals for key patterns in operations such as
deleteAll, escape the character with two backslashes, such as
--NAME=web\\_source for an object named
web_source. In single job mode, also enclose the values containing these characters in quotes, such as
--NAME="web\\_source". Otherwise, the underscore matches any single character.
When using the short form for arguments, escape literal values starting with a dash with two backslashes in single job mode, such as
-n \\-mysource. In session mode, enclose the values in quotes or escape the dash with one backslash. For example,
-n \-mysource or
-n "-mysource". Alternatively, use the long form for arguments, such as
See "Command Interface" for a discussion of session mode and single job mode.
